Hello, my name is Festus and I hope we can be friends.  I am a handsome, black and cream, wire-haired tweenie boy who was given the great name of Festus. I am a sweet, quiet dachshund that is submissive to my people.  Somehow my tail was broken, so you’ll see how I express my happiness through my sparkling, soft, brown eyes, rather than a wagging tail.  Since then, I do try to take extra care about when someone is back there and get a bit concerned about having it touched.  Other than that, I'd like to shout to the world what a good boy I am!  I even like to call the cats a friend of mine!  It seems I was an only child in my last home as I tend to enjoy my alone time.  Once I love my people I tend to be protective of them—so please, no children or other dogs.  You’ll love my wire hair coat and handsome coloring, my laid-back personality and sweet, chocolate eyes that radiate appreciation and love!  Won’t you submit an application so you can see my eyes for yourself?

If you would like to sponsor Festus, he is available for sponsorship!
